Round Saltspring Scoring Analysis...

You know you have truly arrived racing boats under PHRF when you start whining about your rating.  Just for fun we re-scored the Round Saltspring race using both time-on-time (TOT) and time-on-distance (TOD) to see what would have happened - here are our conclusions...

  1. Icon scored 27th overall under TOT and 5th overall under TOD
  2. The top three finish positions were the same under both scoring methodologies
  3. Both scoring systems exhibited a strong bias towards faster boats, although TOT was less so.
Here is a graph of the analysis.  The X-Axis is the PHRF rating, and the Y-Axis is the corrected elapsed time under TOT and TOD scoring:
